Asus G751JY-T7009H Notebook Review

89% Asus G751JY-T7009H Notebook Review

Gaming champion 2014. Asus now uses the GTX 980M as well and offers a very successful and extremely fast ROG gaming notebook in a reworked 17-inch chassis. MSI's GT72 2QE is one rival with even better specifications, but the top version is also 50% more expensive. Our test determines the winner in the clash of the titans.

79% HP ProBook 430 G2 Notebook Review Update

A round bundle. The 13.3-inch size alongside a swift solid state drive and good battery life commends the ProBook 430 G2 as a portable companion. The laptop's screen proves to be its primary weakness.

75% HP Pavilion 17-f130ng Notebook Review Update

Affordable all-rounder. HP's 17.3-inch laptop is available for as little as 560 Euros (~$683). The configuration includes a quad-core processor, matte Full HD screen, and a dedicated Radeon GPU. Doesn't that sound like a good deal?

Acer Aspire R13 R7-371T-779K Convertible Review

84% Acer Aspire R13 R7-371T-779K Convertible Review

Acer's All-in-One. Notebook, tablet or All-in-One PC, the Acer R13 meets almost all the requirements. Thanks to the new Ezel Aero Hinges, the device can be used in many operating modes and is also really fast with its two turbo SSDs in a RAID 0 configuration and Intel's i7 processor.

Fujitsu Lifebook E544 Notebook Review

80% Fujitsu Lifebook E544 Notebook Review

Reliable. Reliability is regarded as the main focus of a business laptop. Fujitsu's Lifebook E544 lineup bundles a total package for 700 Euros. Our test reveals whether the mix of hardware, input devices, and security standards are satisfactory, or whether they are even very good.

Fujitsu LifeBook E554 Notebook Review

81% Fujitsu LifeBook E554 Notebook Review

Not without faults. The Lifebook E554 is primarily aimed at corporate customers. The price level ranging from 600 to 100 Euros also might make it interesting for private users. We have the current top model of the line at hand. It wants to entice potential customers with plenty of computing power, an IPS screen, a solid state drive, a 3G modem, and a very good battery life.

Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-75 Notebook (A10-7300) Review Update

73% Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-75 Notebook (A10-7300) Review Update

Two are better than one. Lenovo only demands 550 Euros (~$669) for its extensively configured IdeaPad Z50-75, which not only features AMD's latest quad-core APU, but also plenty of storage and a total of two graphics chips. Just how well does the dual-graphics technology fare in real-world use?

Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1TD Notebook Review Update

80% Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1TD Notebook Review Update

Now with SSD. The Satellite offers everything that an all-round multimedia notebook should: Alongside a Core i7 processor, the device is equipped with a graphics core powerful enough to render games and a fast solid state drive. An IPS display with stable viewing angles also joins the ranks. But at almost 900 Euros (~$1100), this is no budget device.

87% Schenker XMG P505 PRO (Clevo P651SG) Notebook Review

15-inch reference? The XMG P505 from Schenker Technologies is supposed to close the gap between big 17-inch systems (Asus G751, MSI GT72) and ultra-thin compact gamers like the Gigabyte P34G v2. We have already reviewed the configuration with the GTX 970M, now we have a closer look at the GTX 980M.

77% HP ProBook 470 G2 (G6W68EA) Notebook Review Update

Upgrade or downgrade? HP's new G2-version of their 17-inch business and multimedia hybrid features updated hardware components. The new model comes with an i5-4210U CPU instead of the i5-4200M and a Radeon R5 M255 replaces the Radeon HD 8750M graphics card. The display panel differs as well. How the changes impact performance, battery life, and picture quality is the subject of our review.

84% Dell Latitude 14 Rugged 5404 Notebook Review

Problem? No Problem! A laptop has to be robust, secure, and always ready in industrial environments. Dell now presents its Latitude 14 Rugged 5454 in the Dell-Latitude-Rugged-Extreme lineup. It lacks the "Extreme" in its name, which leads to a drastically reduced price.

Acer TravelMate P256-M-39NG Notebook Review

78% Acer TravelMate P256-M-39NG Notebook Review

Full HD Premium. Acer attracts a lot of office users with its conservative, yet solid and powerful notebooks. Usually, the price-performance ratio is just right, but for this to be true for our test model, which uses the Intel Core i3-4005U and a Full HD display, the price would have to drop quite a lot.

Lenovo Edge 15-80H10004US Notebook Review

75% Lenovo Edge 15-80H10004US Notebook Review

Yoga-like entertainer. Lenovo’s Edge 15 notebook is a Best Buy exclusive with a sleek and sturdy aluminum build and some transformative properties that almost resemble the Yoga line of machines. It’s an interesting combination of features, but is it a practical addition to the lineup?

Acer Aspire ES1-111-C56A Netbook Review

77% Acer Aspire ES1-111-C56A Netbook Review

Little companion. Netbooks still have a purpose. A small, light, and portable Windows device does not have to be expensive. But what can the buyer expect for a price below 250 Euros (~$310)?

86% Dell Latitude E5550 Notebook Review

Business style. The business laptops of Dell's Latitude lineup are actually made for entrepreneurs. However, the slim Dell Latitude E5550 and its plastic casing also fit medium budgets.

82% Intel Core M-5Y70 "Broadwell" Review

Performance goes up, energy consumption goes down? After a several-month delay, Intel has finally released the fifth incarnation of their "Core" architecture, codenamed Broadwell. It's even coming on the market this year -- at least in a few machines. Initially, the new, extremely low-energy Core M series will only be used in the improved 14 nm manufacturing process. Is it a dream come true? Can we now expect to see high-performance, passively cooled Windows tablets?

Alluring. Asus aims at tech enthusiasts with its new 15-inch Zenbook generation.
